We welcome you to the Baawaating Family Health Team Website! Here you will find anything you might want to know about the Baawaating Family Health Team, the Baawaating clinic, and our range of services available to our community members.
Our logo represents a medical symbol amongst our people that is very similar to the Caduceus in Western medicine. It also has a personal meaning for Dr. Wakegijig as it was brought out following the death of her father who was a traditional healer. The shield is a powerful message that is a symbol for our service with personal connections and homage to our medicine people and our traditional people.
“The cultural connection in our profession combines the way of healing, thinking and appreciating the wisdom of elders, our traditional medicines, and complementing western medicine. I find this Family Health Team allows for that to flourish.” – Dr. Wakegijig
